We do not usually eat meat as a main dish in our home, but meatloaf is one exception. I love to make meatloaf because it is easy to hide lots of veggies in the meat.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- shredded veggies of your choice ( I use zucchini and carrots)
- A-1 (about 2 tablespoons)
- garlic powder, minced onion, pepper ( I never measure these!)
I mix my meat in my mixer because I can’t stand touching raw meat.
Add bread crumbs, egg, and A-1 and spices.
Add the veggies to the meat mixture.
Shape into a loaf and cook for about an hour at 350 degrees. We like a dryer meatloaf so I cook ours on the broiler pan so the juices drain.
Slice and serve.
If you don’t want to wait an hour for your meatloaf to cook, shape your meat into balls and cook in a muffin tin. I tried this a few nights ago and it was a big hit. Meatloaf balls (as my kids called them) might replace our ordinary meatloaf. It cooks faster and the kids loved having their own little meatloaves!
